The New York Times has the story on some truly independent movies that sold to distributors for big bucks at the Toronto International Film Festival.

The story mentions David Ayer’s Harsh Times among them, the excellent script for which I read way back in my development days. I’m surprised it never got made by a studio, given the successes of the Ayer-scripted Training Day, The Fast and the Furious and S.W.A.T..
